I think Ys are very girly. I think it's because there are so many Lauryns, Allisyns, Emersyns, Madisyns, etc. People use y to make a male name fit on a girl often enough that I just don't like Ys in boy names. I'm at a loss as to why they change random vowels to Ys in already feminine names. Hayden doesn't work for me at all, but Haeden is good. "ie" is a toss up - sometimes it's neutral, sometimes it's more girly. Ys are definite feminine to me, though.
I think it depends on the name. Our son is Brin. We changed the Y to an I because I thought it looked better, and most people said it was more a girl name. The only Bryn's I've ever known were men. Also, our first son is Ryne. Ryne and Bryn I think would have been to cutesy, like we planned it.
